I’m a huge fan of Noah Baumbach. Ever since I was introduced to Kicking and Screaming (the good one, not the terrible one), I’ve found Baumbach’s wordy and depressing movie-making to fit just so with my cinematic proclivities as a private-college attending-literature studying-non-profit working white-guy.
Anyway. His new film, Frances Ha is making the festival circuit about now, and the folks are saying, generally, that it is terrific. Looking forward to it. Reading through some of the Baumbach press for the new film, I found this short film Noah made for SNL last year, Clearing the Air. I had never seen it before, so I thought, maybe you hadn’t either.
